Smile Jamaica loves Halloween or as I say: Jah-loween! For going on 20 years now I have played all treats no tricks the last Saturday in Jah-tober;
Because my job is a sound editor, I created some sound art: 81 soundbytes or Horror movie trailers that I edited in my home studio. One after each song.
Dracula, Blackula, War of the Worlds. Nuff Vincent Price: Michael Jackson and Dr. Phibes and even Alice Cooper. Halloween and X-Files soundtrack. Nuff Blaxploitation Village of the Damned.
I get a call from a listener when I stitched in the Vincent Price interlude from Alice Cooper’s “Black Widow”. Listener goes, “I called two shows on KRCL requesting “Black Widow,” They didn’t play my request and then I heart it on Smile Jamaica.”

Me being a librarian by trade, I had to be extra organized. I separated my 666 Jah-loween tunes by demography. Then I had my cheat sheet of 75+ horror soundbytes and movie trailers that I chopped up inna vivisection stylee during the month of Jah-tober in my Secret Dubratory buried in the crypt of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives
Here is my Jah-loween Demonology:
Witchdoctors practicing Black Magic, Voodoo and Jamaican Obeah
Blood Suckers: Barnabas Collins, Dracula and assorted vampires
Devils: Lucifer, Satan with the Mark of the Beast pon their ugly faces
Dungeons, Coffins, Graveyards and Boneyards
Ghosts and Jamaican duppies
